Spiritual growth is a process. Just like the four seasons – summer, autumn, winter and spring – our lives change dramatically as we grow in Christ and be transformed by Him. Each new season brings maturity and more understanding of who He is through us. Every season will look different as some will bring joy and peace and others will bring frustration and impatience.
In every struggle or challenge we face on a day-to-day basis, there is always an opportunity for growth. Isaiah 40:31 encourages us that “those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
As we grow in our faith, we will be able to handle difficult situations and see joy in them in the midst of chaos. In those frustrating times, we need to continue to praise Him for those moments because it is bringing purpose into our lives.
I encourage you to take another step toward Christ. Each day is a new day full of new opportunities to be more like Him.
